    Been reading about inmates making a suspension love connection, and I thought I'd throw it out there-

    Mine's a 2000-mile 2011Adv and I'd rather it be taller. Do you have an R that you'd rather it shorter?

    Yes, I realize I can do it aftermarket and spend some loot (and will likely have to do so) but if there's anyone close to San Diego who wants to go the other direction, please PM.

    Thanks.

    (Looks like I was unclear- just wanting to swap suspension components)

    It will make the bike "taller" but that won't increase the travel of the suspension.

    Yes, still looking. Had some interest from some solid folks, but have not yet found the right fit for both.

    Thanks for your interest!

    Maybe. Is your suspension stock?

    Yup.

    Stock and ready to mod- but for you, Nate, I suspect you'd need only valving.

    Paul if he doesn't want to trade the whole bike, maybe just exchange the components. Lots of work I know but...

    That's all I want, just trade the components.
